I definately support... Glad i'm not the only one who wants this guy in smash. And for the final smash you described it would be cool to have a small easter egg with normal zigzagoons & liloones running around as well.

Also, I want a pokéball guy mii brawler costume, because that would be awesome.

Also the MISSINGNO. song from pokémon yellow as one of his music tracks. It would be awesome.

It's been awhile, but some cool stuff came out. First off, Obstagoon plushies are now availible (yay), second, Obstagoon's pokemon card says that the Obstagoon we know is only the Galarian variant, meaning we could see a non galarian obstagoon in the future.

What is Obstagoon?
View attachment 233909
Obstagoon is a Pokémon that is set to appear in the upcoming games Pokémon Sword and Shield. It is a dark and normal type, and the evolved form of galarian linoone. It is known as the blocking Pokémon.

Why should this thing be in Smash?
Obstagoon is the first cross generational evolution (a pokemon evolution that is gained in a generation after the base pokemon is revealed in) bar the eeveelutions, to appear in more than a decade, since Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, in 2008. It is also the first pokemon to evolve specifically from a regional variant, a first, since they were added in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Jab: Swipes with its claws
Forward Tilt: Night Slash, slashes forward. Deals darkness damage.
Down Tilt: Quick kick forward with foot.
Up Tilt: Quick Slash upwards
Forward Smash: Cross Chop, basically X-Scissor from the anime but harder and with fists.
Down Smash: Snarl, Creates a dark shockwave beneath it after howling towards the ground.
Up Smash: Punches upwards. As the chance of being Fire Ice or Thunder punch.
Neutral Aerial: Icy Wind, Creates a miniature snowstorm around it. Does ice damage.
Forward Air: Cross Poison, Slashes forward twice. Deals poison damage.
Back Air: Revenge, a quick punch backwards. Does more damage if at a high percent.
Up Air: A kick upwards.
Down Air: Giga Impact, Slams downwards at a fast velocity. Does recoil.
Neutral Special: Dark Pulse, stamps it's foot down and uses dark pulse DS game style.
Side Special: Sand Attack, Obstagoon picks up sand from the battlefield and tosses it at the foe, reversing controls for a brief time.
Up Special: Double Edge, Obstagoon powers up and launches upwards. If used on an opponent, it does major damage and knockback. It also does recoil damage.
Down Special: Obstruct, Obstagoon will put it's arms in front of it, if a projectile hits it, it will negate the projectile. If a pysical attack hits it, it will swipe back, and the opponent will take more damage from a hit after.
Final Smash: Charges forwards. If it connects, it will send the opponent to a combo in a rock n roll stadium. The stadium suddenly turns dark and Obstagoon slashes the foe upwards, sending them into an onslaught of Galarian Zigzagoon and Linoone. (with a few normal ones too) Obstagoon then lands the finishing blow and launches them away as the crowd cheers.
Up Taunt: Sticks out it's tounge.
Down Taunt: Obstagoon laughs.
Side Taunt: Sticks out it's finger and makes a "Come towards me" gesture.

Do you support Obstagoon in Smash?
